EDIT: Chris Carpenter WHIR 100%

Postby ATLbraves » Fri Aug 12, 2011 4:14 pm

I'm in first place, but likely to move to 2nd after this week since I have been hit with so many injuries. Our league's trade deadline is Sunday and the top 4 teams have been making moves to help their teams win it all this year.


EDIT:
I just offered Mike Minor and a 14th for Chris Carpenter and a 20th
He said he would accept, so should I make this move? I wouldn't hold on to Minor much longer since he is streaming for me.

Or should I just stand pat? I think my offense is good once everyone gets healthy, but I feel like I could use more SP depth.


Do y'all think I need to upgrade my SP?

True I didnt look at the Blue Jay's schedule down the stretch, Morrow would have to face the Red Sox and Yankees in the fantasy playoffs so I dont really like that.

Should I try and acquire Hanson, Carpenter, or Beckett?

I think Carpenter has some of the best matchups down the stretch and I can get him at a cheap price.

I think your SP could use an upgrade for down the stretch, and this isn't a bad move. That said, if you think you can get Hanson, you may be able to buy low on him.

Some health concerns, but recent tests showed nothing severe and he may just need a rest. Def a risk, but worth it for the right price.

I'd avoid Beckett as he also carries the AL East problem; multiple series remaining vs 3 of the top 4 AL offenses (Yanks, Jays, Texas).

Thanks for the help, see my response.

I would go with Carpenter...great team and even though it's the NL Central, I think he has a great chance to become an asset for you.

Thanks for the help on mine!

Definitely go after Carpenter, Cards have a pretty good schedule down the stretch and of course they have a solid team supporting him.

Thanks for all the help guys.
